For freedom to worship they came to our shore.
They made a long journey from depth of conviction
To worship our God and be free from restriction.
Freedom in worship they knew must be guarded,
Not lightly treated or foolishly discarded.
This is a heritage we cannot forget,
An error which only would bring deep regret.
God is our strength and all hope for this nation.
We lift our hands in heartfelt oblation.
In honor and tribute and worship we stand,
Knowing our blessings have been from His hand.
"It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High."
Psalm 92:1 KJV
